supported the bush administration after 9/11 and fighting epimieses and the problem with the obama administration is not that it is too assertive. the problem is that we are retreating all around the world and unfortunately emboldening our enemies. if rand paul wants to run to the left of the obama administration he is tree to ned ahat in the republican minute. maybe this is more is support for that than i think but i doubt there really is. >> chris: nina, the president thinks bringing the troops home not in a rush but steadily and eventually is a winning message in the last campaign, frankly not talking about open-ended commitments. does the gop need to recognize and respond to a war weariness in the country? >> i think the drone issue and war we areness are two totally different issues. rand paul's war and drones is a war on a pretty successful fight against terrorism right now. i'm not sure where that gets us. i agree with bill that the gop doesn't lose by being a strong party of national security. what we -- what the republicans lost were moderates new election. thin in the 56%
with the obama administration. there are other people who probably share every bit of mr. perez's views as relates to the use of the law, labor unions, empowering labor unions, fighting against employers who don't want to offer benefits and union access. there's probably somebody who does all of those things, but isn't as controversial as mr. perez, but in choosing mr. perez the president sends a clear message to republicans that says obama 2.0 is still on. >> megyn: we mentioned some of the sound bites in the introduction about mr. perez from somebody who used to work at the doj. that somebody is jay christian adams, he was a do jchj attorne and he worked on the new black panthers case that mr. perez testified about earlier and an openly conservative man. mr. perez is not. so they clearly have an ideological divide between the two of them. he went on the mark levin radio show last week and had the following to say about mr. perez. >> totally lawless. this is a man for whom law is a nuisance. he brings the cases, you might remember, against school districts to allow children to dress in
the deadly terrorist attacks in benghazi, the obama administration today finally in acknowledging that additional americans we injured in the attack. in addition to the four men killed. the u.s. ambassador to libya, chris stevens, and three others were murdered in a september 11th attack. now congressional investigators are pressing the obama administration to make the four wounded survivors available for interviews. fox news chief intelligence correspondent katherine harris with the report. ♪ >> for the first time since terrorist attack the diplomatic mission and the cia outpost none as the amex and benghazi, libya, the state department publicly confirmed how many of its employees were hurt and the nature of their injuries. >> one was smoke inhalation at the temporary mission facility. one at the amex, seriously injured, one -- another at the amex was less seriously injured. we also have a contractor. >> a diplomatic security source told fox is the state department agency was in the most serious condition suffered a severe head injury during the second wave of the attack when t
that this and the answer has to be no. the fact that he got that shows that the president obama administration has carried off this robust war by drones. 4,800 people have been killed by drone strikes under the obama administration. that is an astounding number. i think it is troublesome. the fact that rand paul had to go to such lengths to get that simple answer that is what resonated. i don't think it advanced the drone question that much but that is the beauty of politics in 2013. rand paul is pretty low key? he gave almost a lecture here. he is charismatic but he doesn't a -- >> i'm glad to see a politician stand for something, has core values. in something. stand up for something. on the other hand you have john mccain stuffing his face for president obama. if he had core values and core con visions he did not like what rand paul stood for, go to the filibuster and call him on it. what did he do? he waited until the next day, had a nice party with president obama, fed that fat face of his and then came back to the floor and made an issue about it. i understand that john mccain is a big supporter of t

arizona and the obama administration. this time, over the state requirement that those who seek to register to vote provide proof of u.s. citizenship. arizona registration form requires more proof than the simpler federal form. on which applicants check a box, ind kateing u.s. citizen think, sign attesting to that fact and drop it in the mail. arizona argues that it doesn't conflict with the federal form but serves as an additional barrier against voting by non-u.s. citizens. >> if somebody is willing to fraudulently vote that person would be willing to sign fals falsely. so the signature doesn't mean anything. we need evidence that the person is a citizen. >> justice scalia sounded skeptical of the streamlined federal form. "check off, i am a citizen, right? so it's under oath. big deal. if you are willing to violate the voting laws i suppose you're willing to violate the perjury laws." despite issue the arizona officials say they are facing justices like ruth bader ginsberg said there are statutes saying they must accept and use the federal form period. that is the end of it.
that thomas perez headed up predating the obama administration. republicans charge the decisions whether to pursue certain cases or not were politically motivated, that from senator jeff sessions, a republican from alabama, nominating mr. perez to the important post, the president placed his drive to promote his flawed immigration policies over the needs of millions unemployed americans. we need a secretary of labor who fights to create jobs for american workers, not one that undermines legal work requirements. this goes to the senate health committee, and tom harkin says perez was a voice for the most vulnerable and reenvying rate -- reinvigorated the enforcement of the most important civil rights laws. >> thank you so much. interesting story there. >> absolutely. washington trying to trim the fast, will your mortgage deduction end up on the chopping block? >> a drop in confidence, is two months a trend for a slowly recovering housing market? >> surprised to see that on home builders confidence. all right. metals headed to break, a bump in gold prices today with the news from europe, gr
, the obama administration is tooting the fact that he oversaw lending elements at the justice department, but not talking about the methods used in the cases. he used desperate impact, a way, basically, of using statistics to prove discrimination. if more blacks denied home loans than whites, that's automatically racial discrimination. more black kids sus pended rather than white kids, that's automatic racial discrimination. the facts don't matter, just the outcome. dagen: how could he apply that thinking in his job as labor secretary? what would be the impact there? >> well, the government can shame businesses. it can shame districts in terms of school district. government wields a lot of authority, and a lot of moral persuasion, and even the fact that you can bring attention to certain situations or the threat of government action is enough sometimes, and the problem here is that if doesn't always have the intended effect. i mean, if you force banks to loan to people who can't afford to pay them back, these people will be saddled with foreclosed homes and poor credit ratings at the end
administration and then under the first year of the obama administration. and each time the senate killed it. >> yeah. but the key thing there is that each time both the clinton administration and the obama administration tried to do this it was essentially a top-down, inside the beltway strategy. we are going after and trying to cajole and convince and persuade the members of the senate and the house to pass this legislation without first engaging the broad public and building a citizens movement, a issue public as i talked about before that was actually demanding change. because in the end politicians care about their job. and if they don't feel like there's a political price to pay for opposing action on climate change or alternatively a political opportunity to be had by being a leader on this issue, it's very easy for them to say, "you know what? i've got a lot of other things here on my plate to deal with. i've got lots of lobbyists coming into my office as well as people back home saying, do this, do that, do this. and it's not climate change. so until they feel that they have to act
think the obama administration should not take a leading role in those negotiations. the president will also focus on iran. according to state tv launched a destroyer in the caspian sea yesterday. israeli leaders are expected to push the president about the white house approach to stopping tehran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. >>> there's big takeaways from the annual gathering of conservatives known as cpac, including signs that it could be a crowded presidential field in 2016 for a republican party still trying to find its footing. amid a field of 23 potential candidates, senator rands paul narrowly edged out senator marco rubio and over the course of several days dozens of leaders across the country took the stage there. despite efforts to energize the dialogue turned pointed and public. sarah palin challenged party brass to stop trying to rebrand the gop. she blasted establishment figures for their efforts to only fund candidates they consider viable in a general election. it was a message that drew a quick response from one of the party's top strat gists. >> the last thing w
teacher furloughs to longer airport lines to criminal its running free, the obama administration has lied to the american people. they have even closed the white house for public tours. remarkably, the many false claims from the white house had even prompted some in the mainstream media to push back. one of the reasons why the white house thought it could get away with it is because the media has always been in their back pocket. you just have to look at all the obama scandals, with the latest being the tragedy where four brave americans died -- were murdered in benghazi, to see the media's complacency. the obama administration has not been forthcoming with information on benghazi, and congress has failed in its oversight responsibilities. citizens united recently launched a campaign calling on members of congress to create a select committee to investigate fully the benghazi tragedy. it has been over 30 years since jimmy carter's presidency that a united states ambassador has been killed overseas. now six months after benghazi, there are more questions than answers. it is vitally importa
standard" more popular during obama administration or the bush administration? >> you know, it is about the same. i think. >> you didn't get a rash of news? >> a little bit. but not really that much. >> and what about your experience now with fox news? are you still doing the commentary? >> i do some but a lot less. >> why? >> well, that is partly the decision of fox news, but you know, going with other people. i did special report, the show that is 6:00 to 7:00 eastern time. brit hume was the host. i was there almost every night. brett comes in. he wants to have his own people. >> how far do you go back? >> high school. >> what was he like in high school? >> he, i guess, he has changed a lot. >> in what way? >> he was, he was always pretty self-confident, spoke very well. he was not particularly a great student, nor was i when we were together at the university of virginia. we both went in the same line of work. >> when he was here right after he retired. he talked about his relationship with jesus christ, the same thing. >> right. >> that is new that people talk about this in public?
that night that according to lindsay graham who told fox news the obama administration is being unusually tight lipped compared to other events. >> you got to remember this administration leaked every detail of the bin laden raid. though telled old us about seal 6. they are refuse to go give us the identity and allowing congress to be interviewed. >> four died in the terror attack. shawn smith and former navy seal glen daughterty and tyrone woods and ambassador chris stevens. >> information begins to emerge as we learn the security agents and one state department contractor who were among the injured may be being asked not to talk. lindsay graham tells fox news the injured survivors may have been quote told to be quiet. he says the house should investigate. >> i am going to hold up the business of the senate until they get the survivors on record. i have talked to a couple. the story is chilling they are scared to death to come forward without some institutional support. >> members the house intelligence committee says it's still too early to say whether or not they will investigate. >> s
of immigration reform, the current debate, is employers will be held accountable. the obama administration had actually been enforcing the immigration laws, has been directorate number of audits and still the workplace audits as well. and holding employers accountable more than any previous administration. the legislation -- in order for it to function, there have to be take components. people need to be brought out of the shadows and allowed to apply for earned his citizenship and secondly, employers need to be held accountable, particularly from labor law violations. if employers know they can hire and exploit workers then get away with that, they will continue to do so even after we have immigration reform. labor law protection as a major component of enforcement of the laws is an extremely important deterrent to future unlawful immigration. host: story from politico earlier this month. senate stop on lower skilled workers. -- stuck on low-skilled workers. talk about this effort. guest: the issue of any future immigrants who come on employment-based visas is but that the fault line. chamber
is raising serious questions about the obama administration's handling of the benghazi terror attacks and the aftermath. senator lindsey graham accuses the white house of telling injured survivers of those attacks to quote, be quite and not share their stories. now he's willing to do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of this happen. >> i'm going to hold up the pweufs the senate until we get the survivors on record. i've talked to a couple. their story is chilling. they are scared to death to come forward without some institutional support. jon: let's talk about it with bret baier the anchor of special report and a guy who has done a great deal of reporting on what happened in the benghazi situation. there are 33 survivors of the attacks who were evacuated from the diplomatic facilities there, bret? >> reporter: yes, jon, a lot of them fall into the cia category and probably will not be heard from, undercover agents. you do have at least four state department officials, state department security and a contractor who were injured in the attack, and you have people like senator grah
but at a lower rate than it should be. we lost over 700,000 government jobs during the obama administration despite all the right wing talk about him the fact is the deficit is getting smaller and there are fewer and fewer government jobs. the addition of jobs we had last month, 236,000 jobs, 70 those of those were business service jobs. that's a good sign for the future. accountants office workers being hired that employeers expect more business in the future. but the sequester and the press for austerity and the increase of social security tax are all slowing our progress to where we should be. >> michael: of course these companies would be hiring accountants now because they're making so much damn money because they're not paying enough wages to their workers. that's part and parcel of how it works. >> yes remember a fundamental tenant of the chicago school and i went to the chicago school is to get rid of unions, that means driving down wages. i just reported in my column in tax analysts, tax notes, if you take the average increase of income for the bottom 90% of americans from 1966 whe

't seem like she's giving hints that the obama administration is going to act, but she wants to first make sure that other people will act with the united states if there's action. so explain, explain what she, what she's doing in france. >> guest: well, first, let me give you the context of that trip because it was one of the most insane trips that i have been on. everything was on the move. it felt like the world was ending. you had the earthquake in japan with the tsunami there and the nuclear crisis, you had a crisis with pakistan where the cia contractor raymond davis was detained, you had, um, the revolution that was just ending in egypt, hosni mubarak had just stepped down, tunisia had already happened, the revolution was ongoing, the uprising was ongoing in libya, syria was just erupting, and you had a couple of thousand saudi and emirati troops filing into, marching into bahrain to try to quell the unrest there. all of this happening at the same time while we're on this flight to paris, and the u.s. is coming under intense pressure to try to do, intense pressure to do something ab
administration, usually at the end but in this case at the beginning is the israeli palestinian conflict, president obama you mention in your book, his first call was -- as president was to abbas, the head of the palestinian authority. how did that get derailed? seems like it's no longer -- maybe it's going to become a front burner issue but for at least three years, the presidency went to the back burner. what happened there? >> guest: several things. it wasn't for lack of trying on the part of the administration. you can sum it up by saying, expectations were raised way too high by the president, by the administration. there was a belief that perhaps there was a window of opportunity that could be used to advance the talks. but there was a misreading in the united states about what had changed on the ground in and are in the palestinian territories, and where each of the players was, netanyahu, and abbas. and there is often the sense that if you're the american president, you can make anything move, and then you bump against reality, and it's not enough to be -- the president changed.

security council in the obama administration and aaron david miller, fellow at the woodrow wilson international center. welcome, both. first, tommy, why did it take so long for this president to get to israel? he had a lot on his plate there were enormous economic challenges to deal with back home. but not every president going to israel in his first term, george bush didn't. this is great opportunity for the president to sync up with prime minister netanyahu on iran, sir yarks the critical issues of the region where israel is in the eye of the storm. he can also speak directly to the israeli people, via a speech to a bunch of university students. >> aaron david miller, you were a middle east negotiator in a number of white houses and state departments, republican and democratic. what, how much syncing up with prime minister netanyahu do you think is going to take place, realistically? >> it's smart politics, it's smart policy, too. obama has got the most dysfunctional relationship with any israeli prime minister in the history of the u.s./israeli relationship. now benjamin netany
difficult for patty murray and the obama administration to follow up on. >> well, but it fits in with what the president wants which is to give more tax relief to the middle class. i simply have to say as i always do, that though is something that flies in the face of what a lot of economists and former president clinton say have to happen over the long term which is taxes need to go up on the middle class. >> the president has been questioned about fairness and saying if you look at sort of the way that dow is going, you look at sort of the incredible profits on corporations. they're not paying their fair share. but to go back to the issue at hand, i really think the speaker -- >> how do you define fair, cornell? if you tax 100%, you don't get rid of the debt problem. so what is fair? >> i think it is a visceral main street issue. when working americans are paying sort of more taxes than warren buffett, i think you get the sense that it not fair. when you have lornarge corporats and big oil companies raking in huge profits and not paying taxes that, is not fair. >> if you look at the oil
states are also considering comparable measures. the obama administration supports the challenge to the arizona law. and today's arguments on the heels of another case that could roll back a key portion of the voting rights act of 1965. for more on today's arguments, we turn as always to marcia coyle of the "national law journal." she was in the courtroom this morning, and is back with us tonight. so the outcome, marcia, of this could actually tip the federal-state balance on who gets to govern how we vote. >> that's true, gwen. the question before the justices is where do you draw the line between who has the authority to regulate elections. the election clause of the constitution actually gives authority to both. but where is the line when one crosses or goes too far than the other does? so that's the issue before the court. it wasn't clear today that it's going to be an easy line to find. >> ifill: the reason why this arizona law exists is because arizona officials say there's a problem involving illegal or undocumented immigrants registering to vote fraudulently. is there any
party were outside polling places. and critics claim the obama administration has not been efficient in pursuing and prosecuting cases of that sort. and suggest that there continue to be these racial and political hostilities in the department that went back before even he was there. they began in the bush administration but the suggestion is he didn't do enough when he took overt civil rights department. >> peter, the president about to leave the white house to go to israel tomorrow for the first time as president. and he had said in the past that he only wanted to visit the country if there was something concrete to accomplish here. so is there, or is this more about optics? >> well are there's a lot concrete to accomplish. it's unlikely any of it will be accomplished during this trip. he's only on the ground in israel 48 hours. he will make stops in the west bank. he'll first visit with benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel, and then go to the west bank to have meetings with the palestinian authority mahmoud abbas. and he'll also stop in jordan having had a conversation

has many about the u.s. and western civilization. it's really time now in a the obama administration and the world actually start to see if they'll have influence in terms of the eastern part of the globe. china and india are the two largest countries that actually export oil in from iran. and so you have to find a way to characterize this conversation to those two nations that a nuclear iran is not a good idea for their interests. we already have convinced the western civilization. you have to talk to china, you have to talk to i sandia. >> third question. sarah palin rocking cpac. doing everything from mocking new york city mayor michael bloomberg's big soda ban with a big sip from her big gulp to blasting the republican establishment. >> if these experts who keep losing elections, you keep getting rehired raking in millions, if they feel that strongly about who gets to run in this party, then they should buck up or stay in the truck. buck up and run. the architects can head on back to -- they can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> oh, t

. while israel was out ahead of the obama administration in saying assad must go, you have to understand it's a little jittery in israel at this moment because they look to the south and what happened in egypt, the rise of the muslim brotherhood, given all the uncertainty of who and what would succeed assad if he were to fall, wolf. important the president and prime minister stay on the same page on this one. >> what do they expect to emerge from president obama's visit to israel this week? >> it's interesting. if you talk to key officials here in israel, talk to members of the palestinian leadership, most of them say at first, not much. they think the president's coming here because he has to, didn't come in the first four years. they think he's coming here because he wants to talk most importantly about the iran nuclear cooperation with netanyahu. they expect president obama to give diplomacy more time and expect the important conversation about syria. they don't expect a new peace initiative from the american president. on the one hand, in a sense, what took you so long, but in a brea

. we're talking about afghanistan but how do you think history is going to judge the obama administration's decision not to intervene in any significant military fashion in syria? 70,000 dead as you know and several million refugees. >> i think it's way too early how to predict how history is going to judge whether our policy is right. it's not too early to know how history will judge assad. that's easy. but in terms of whether or not we have proceeded in a more deliberate way than some would want us to, and probably a little more than i would want us to if you want to get into that, nonetheless the goal here is to make sure that what happens after assad is, is stable, is diverse, is not chaotic. that the right people are the ones that take over when assad goes. and that's, that's a matter of putting in place, if possible, a kind of an interim political coalition, which will have broad support inside of syria, which will not see a long period of retribution and violence following the fall of assad which will happen. and putting that in place to the extent that's possible is
